Program Notes

From the composers of You Raise Me Up, this tender ballad is filled with a range of emotions in the form of a lullaby from a parent to a grown child embarking on a life all their own. Michael Sweeney retains the soothing beauty of the original melody while exploring a rich variety of textures and moods, giving full expression to the feelings that inspired the lyric.
